Firefighter Risks It All To Save Man's Best Friend

Posted: Updated:
BOURNE, Mass. -

A Massachusetts firefighter ventures into a frigid lake and rescues a dog that had broken through the ice.

A neighbor spotted the dog in the lake and called for help.

Fire Lt. Dana DuPuis tethered himself to shore and crawled about 40 yards on all fours across the ice and successfully rescued the dog.

"As we were pulling, she's just holding on and sliding. And we just slid right in, and she was as happy as before she fell in," DuPuis said.

The dog was a little shaken up and checked out by a vet but is expected to be all right.
